Letting Time Pass

Here is a shot of The Rod and Reel, a local favorite on Anna Maria Island. I took this after dusk on a Friday night. It was the tail end of dusk so the clouds had a hint of the color.

Here you can get a brew or have a meal while you sit on the pier surrounded by the tropical waters of the Gulf. For a few dollars you can get some bait and rent a pole. The nice thing about that is you won't need a fishing license so it's usually the first place I take out-of-state guests that want to fish. I could think of worse places to sit for a few hours.

If you watch the waters you'll see dolphins and manatees swimming by. People come here at night to fish for shark, it's not uncommon. Not something I might not do, but hey, I could if I wanted to.

This is a thirteen-second exposure and so it causes the water to appear smooth. That's an effect I like a lot, I could do long exposures all the time and never get tired of it. A little like time surfing, whatever that means. I think of it as taking a stretch of time and compressing it. When we do that to water it creates a wave. So here I'm letting some time pass and then compressing it to make this image. Maybe a little bit shaky as a metaphor, but I'm on Anna Maria Island so who cares.
